What is Reverse Charge Mechanism? Normally the taxable person providing supplies to customers is responsible for charging VAT and also liable to pay the VAT charged to the tax authority. In case of Reverse Charge Mechanism (RCM), it is the buyer of goods/ services that levies VAT to itself instead of the supplier of the goods/ services. The major change between a reverse and forward charge is the change in responsibility with regards to paying VAT as in a reverse charge the responsibility is shifted from supplier of the goods/ service to the buyer of it. When Reverse Charge Mechanism becomes applicable in the UAE? The RCM is applicable in the UAE when a taxable person operating its activities in the UAE purchases goods or receives services from outside the GCC implementing states. Under this mechanism the taxable person will not be required to pay tax when at the time of importing goods or services. Reporting VAT transaction under Reverse Charge Mechanism In a reverse charge the buyer is the one that is responsible for reporting the VAT transaction. The buyer receiving a taxable supply using RCM is responsible for reporting both the VAT on purchases (input VAT) and VAT

Mark Carney, the chief of Bank of England stated that almost 15 million of the existing jobs in Britain could be automatized in a period of time, this includes a lot of professions including accounting in its entirety. In response to the statement by Mr. Carney, John Williams, the head of ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) cited: “When it comes to automation having a big impact on automating the profession of accounting, Mr Carney stands correct. However, I cannot agree with the belief that the ‘rise of robots’ indicates towards the end of accounting. If artificial intelligence really indicated towards the end of accountants, it would also indicate the end of central bankers! “The robotic process automation is basically referring to a software that is written in order to perform process that are repetitive, as well as interacting with several applications, all of this is done under the control of a human manager.
